Burmese pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi has begun her tour of the United Kingdom - the first time in 24 years she has visited the country that was once her home.
Ms Suu Kyi arrived at London's School of Economics earlier to take part in a roundtable discussion.
She will spend Tuesday, her 67th birthday, in London and Oxford, the city where she lived in the early 1980s with her late husband, academic Michael Aris and their sons Alexander and Kim.
The Nobel laureate will meet Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague during her four-day stay, before addressing Parliament on Thursday.
The Burmese opposition leader, who spent much of the last 21 years under house arrest in her native country, will be presented with an honorary degree by Oxford University and is due to address the Oxford Union.
Ms Suu Kyi also visited Dublin, where U2's Bono presented her with an Amnesty International Award.
Accepting the honour, she said she had found the whole experience "totally unexpected".
"To receive this award is to remind me that 24 years ago, I took on duties from which I have never been relieved," said Ms Suu Kyi.
And before leaving the city , there was enough time to sing Happy Birthday to the leader.
She had arrived in Ireland from Norway, where she was presented with her Nobel Peace Prize, 21 years after it was awarded to her in 1991.
